Careers with Real Ideas
We’re working to create a fairer world by solving problems and creating opportunities – could you be part of the solution? From breathing new life into old buildings to supporting young people to develop the skills to succeed in an ever-changing world, Real Ideas innovates to deliver real and lasting social change.
We are looking for those who have a desire and willingness to have meaningful conversations, be interested, spark inquisitiveness in others, to look beyond the filters and not simply accept the status quo. We are looking for informed agitators – those who have a want/need to find out and understand how other people think.
We are an energetic, passionate and creative team. We love nothing more than delivering real change for people and communities.
The work is broad, varied and challenging – so bring your a-game and a hefty supply of determination, energy and passion.
